Windows Images - add option for delete Swap and hibernation files
I was using Clonezilla/DRBL for some time and it have an option very convenient for Windows imaging named “rm-win-swap-hib”
rm-win-swap-hib: Removes the page and hibernation files in Windows partitions if exists (NTFS / FAT). This speed up Image creation and restore procces.
Skipping those files may speed up cloning / restore process without causing any harm plus smaller final image size.
You could check the Clonezilla script to get an idea about how this works:
NOTE: delete page and hibernation files should be secure, but sometimes this files may be necessary (for example, if system go to hibernation instead of shutdown… etc)
I like to solve them so I know which Feature Request’s have been completed. No this does not mean it needs a question flag.

@alv000h Feature requests aren’t open or unsolved or problem tickets - they are just requests.
I did not know about this feature…
You can close or resolve this FR or if someone tells me how I will proceed to cancel this.
@alv000h FOG already removes page files (swap) and hibernation files on capture.
